Description

Travel to the Philippines without leaving home!

From the author of Filipino Children's Favorite Stories comes a book for young children that features a Filipino-American boy visiting the Philippines for the very first time.

Filipino Friends, perfect for Filipino-American's or those just interested in the culture, is indispensable in bridging the gap between the two cultures.

Following the sweet multicultural children's story, kids will learn about Philippine customs and traditions, including:
  • Filipino festivals and celebrations
  • Traditional dress
  • Snacks and meals
  • Songs and games
  • The Filipino language—Tagalog—and more!
